Dynamic Duos #4

Busy weekend at our household as we prepare for 6 billets to arrive tomorrow from Wales.  My daughter plays field hockey at high school and my son plays rugby.  The billets are students that are on tour in Canada and require lodging while visiting our school.  We have 2 girls being host by my daughter and 4 boys being host by my son.  Yes, what was I thinking.  They stay for two nights, such a fantastic experience for all the kids involved.

On to my card.  I created this card for this weeks Dynamic Duos challenge using Melissa Bickford's Heart-2-Heart and Flower Fusion #6 mini stamp sets.  Hope you enjoy.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Ocean Tides
Stamps: Heart-2- Heart #4, Flower Fusion #6
Ink: Ocean Tides, Pure Poppy
Other:  foam dots

What a fun few days...we used to host Japanese Exchange students when I was in high school and we had a blast even with the language barrier. Your card is just too cute and love all of the those phones and the sentiments with each. Have a great week!
